*everything* that’s considered romantic has been conditioned by society, it’s performative, like the emotion can be genuine but romantic *gestures* are a societal construct, chocolates, flowers, rings, there’s no inherent act of romance, the purest form of what is conceptualized as “romance” can probably be boiled down to emotion + intent, and the manifestation of that combo’s gonna be different for everyone
an action evoked from a feeling of adoration and the need to express it can be constrained by what society provides, but once it’s made irrelevant the meaning becomes tailored to those experiencing it; someone giving fancy chocolates to their s.o. because it’s ‘the thing to do’ can’t measure up to someone giving the chocolates because they know their s.o. thinks the boxes are nice and really likes hazelnut fillings, same gesture, but former lacks ‘inherent’ romance because romance isn’t ‘inherent’, the later has a standard approach but it goes beyond what’s considered ‘romantic’
This a few weeks old but I felt a need to upload this anyways.
Jet Set Radio X Sonic Adventure 2! Or just SA2 with rollerblades…. both games are pretty cool but I can’t play much of either without a controller…
… why do people literally forget that rhodey exists? He’s been in more marvel movies than half of the rest of the avengers, with like, SIGNIFICANT amounts of screen time in the iron man trilogy and yet his character is the real life version of the smudged handwriting meme
Currently sorting out all of my YOI stuff and making an “Otabek” corner in my room.
I have never owned this so much green stuff and goods (particularly badges) by the same character on my entire life. Σ(‘◉⌓◉’)
oh my god i can’t take it anymore i’m in love with ben’s eyes
and not JUST his iris, there’s already loads of appreciation post on his wonderful otherworldly cosmic-coloured irises, this time i wanna talk about the rest of his eye features
i love his eyelid!!! I do i love it so much especially when his eyes are half-open at rest and relaxed because then they make such a distinct and clean line above his eyes
LOOK AT THOSE EYELIDS IT’S SO CUTE
and then there’s the cute lil slanted pea-shape i mean look!!! it’s so anime-y, as someone who draws lots of ben/sherlock fanart, let me just tell you that drawing the shape of his eye is one of the most satisfying things in the world
and then there’s his eyelashes! it’s not particularly thick or particularly long, but it’s just the perfect amount of length and sparseness and curl to perfectly decorate his eye and make his iris seem to sparkle more
and also just how expressive all those features combined can be, his eyes are SO expressive!! just look at how soft and radiant it is when he smiles
look at how sad and sombre it is when he cries
how vulnerable it looks when he’s weak
how scary it can look when he’s angry
AND THEN THIS!!!! I DONT EVEN KNOW HOW TO CAPTION IT BECAUSE LOOK AT ALL THE EMOTIONS HIS EYES ALONE COULD CONVEY!
please talk to me about ben’s eyes, every time i see his eyes i amd more and more in love with him and i’m not even the type to romanticize things, i’m the opposite of that but his eyes!! like i’m genuinely in awe with his eyes because of its pure mathematical beauty, the curvature of its shape, the flick of its eyelash, the distinctiveness of the eyelid, the depth of its expressiveness!
DO YOU UNDERSTAND??????? WHY I’M SO IN LOVE????? WITH HIS EYES???????????
